He is in most people's heads, in your heart is just another way of saying he his strongly intertwined in your emotions, like God and anything else we believe in, everything is in our heads when you think about it.
Well he cant be in your heart... Thats just a bunch of cardiac tissue pumping blood... BUT. He can alter the world around you in subtle ways. Make you a little more short tempered with that person that really annoys you, maybe make too busy to pray today, convince you not to do your homework today so you have to do it on sunday and end up missing church, things like that happen everyday, we just have to resist them!!! people need stop blaming him for their sins. He doesnt "make you" do ANYTHING! You are the ones who CHOSE to sin after all. He is VERY real. And he tempts you every day. His biggest deception was when he convinced people that he isnt real.
If you believe in a higher power, in a positive energy, in God, in angels, in light and goodness then the negative is just a real. I believe that there is an opposing force to God and that there is a constant battle/struggle in each of us. I believe Satan or "it" exists but I don't think he runs around in a red leotard with horns and a pitchfork. I also believe that I have the will/power/choice/ability to choose what fills my heart, mind and SOUL, and I choose God.
Satan is governing the world, as mentioned in 1 John 5:19, "We know we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." From the beginning of mankind, the devil has been trying to separate humans from their Creator, Jehovah God. "Keep your senses, be watchful. Your adversary, the Devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking to devour someone" (1 Peter 5:8). He is the one behind all the evil and cruelty in this world, which affects each and every one of us in one way or another. We suffer, whether directly or indirectly, because of Satan and his antics.

Dude, Satan is attempting to seduce everyone. Sometimes he is successful. But the way he does is so subtle that you wont know unless you are prepared. The scary thing is that his messages are in anything you might find innocent, a movie, tv ad, anything. When you see something like porn or violence, that is Satan at his best. Now once you have that thought staying in your mind and you dwell on it, that makes it easier for Satan to enter and fester in your heart. Our only chance is to listen to the Word of God and constantly pray for his help and guidance. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm preaching.
